What Stimulates the Grit to Excel Academically?

What Stimulates the Grit to Excel Academically?


Does your child study on his/her own at home? Does your child stick around until he/she solves a problem? Do you know what problem is your child facing? No? Let’s find out what is stopping him/her from delivering their best.

Learning and practice are two of the major activities recapitulating the journey of a person, starting from his/her childhood and ending with his/her life. However, we often restrict them to the time spent in schools and colleges because we probably feel these skills are more relevant to our ‘student life’. We may not realise it but,

“Incremental steps in practice are indispensable to a person’s learning process.”

Consistent efforts, repeated training, and hard work are just not enough to gain mastery over any subject or activity. The practice needs to be purposeful, systematic and meaningful, in short, deliberate, if one wants to excel.


Deliberate practice leads students to continuous learning, which implants in them a desire to achieve excellence.”

Focused practice produces academically tenacious students, who—

·         Understand their purpose in life

·         Rise above short-term distractions and gains

·         Combine smart and hard work to improve in different fields

·         Develop a mindset to withstand challenges and

·         Persevere towards their objectives.

Students who practice deliberately analyse their momentary failures, or successes and learn from them. They start with breaking down their tasks into subsequent parts and carefully formulate strategies to accomplish minor milestones. They develop a knack for minute details which increase their focus. After perfecting their skills with consistent practice, they shift to a higher-level critical thinking skill to overcome the challenges hindering their way. Gradually, children start taking pleasure in the learning process. Ultimately, it contributes to their overall experience.

In schools, learning doesn’t need to be defined by books, role models, or standards. It must be student-centric, that is specific, customized and applicable to all students having different skills and talents.

The strategy works best when combined with a pedagogy or curriculum. This is where teachers and growth facilitators play a vital role in delivering important lessons in life. Instructors that adopt a student-centric approach to increase engagement, successfully achieve the objective of education—that is to

‘Enable children to think and act, rather than piling their minds with unnecessary concepts.’

But how do you explain logical concepts like deliberate practice, continuous learning and academic tenacity to a kid who has just stepped his/her foot in the school?

Attend our upcoming workshops to find answers to all your queries and learn how to prepare your kids for a better tomorrow!
